Each year I do at least 200 jars of home-canned produce. Last year we almost made it to 300 jars. That’s a lot. After I finish each jar, I label it in some way and put it away with all my other home-canned food storage.
Normally if it’s something that’s just for us, I write the contents of the jar and the year it was produced on the top of the jar and stick it in the pantry. When I put together special mixes or gifts into jars, I like to label those a little differently.
When my custom mix jars are empty, I just refill them with the same things so I need a label that lasts. Since they’re usually stored in a pantry shelf with other mixes, I also need a label that’s easy to read from the front of the jar, instead of the top.
Here are some of the many homemade mixes I keep on hand in my pantry and have labeled with these free printable canning jar labels:
Breadmaker Bread Mix
Ooey Gooey Brownies Mix
Pita Pockets Mix
Taco Seasoning Mix
Hamburger Helper Mix
Hot Chocolate Mix
Hot Roll Mix
Pancake and Waffle Mix
Cream of Soup Mix
Homemade Muffin Mix Recipe
What about gifts in a jar? There are so many fun things that can be made in a jar and given as gifts for all occasions. A nice little label on the front with the name and directions written on it is the perfect touch for gift giving. Here are a few things that I’ve given as gifts in the past:
